ANNAPOLIS, Md.—Governor Larry Hogan today issued the following statement regarding gas tax relief:

“Nearly 100 days ago, Maryland became the first state in the nation to suspend the gas tax, and we proved that it can be done successfully to lower prices for working Americans.

We have also been calling on President Biden to take action to suspend the federal gas tax, and we are pleased that he has now finally agreed to do so. With the pain at the pump only getting worse, Congress should act immediately to suspend the federal gas tax.

“Today, we are also again calling on Democratic leaders in Maryland to take action to address rising gas prices. We are once again calling on the Comptroller to use the same authority he has in the past in order to minimize the impact of the gas tax increase scheduled for July 1.

We are again calling on the presiding officers of the General Assembly to convene a special session for the express and sole purpose of passing emergency legislation to suspend the gas tax. I am prepared to swiftly sign a gas tax suspension into law.

“There is no reason why we cannot come together and get this done before the July 4th holiday to provide much-needed relief for the crushing costs burdening families and businesses.”

  1. Until countries start going after oil companies for price gauging this will not stop

      1. Are you serious? You cannot be serious right now?

        Who sets them? You? God? The pope?

  2. Suspending the gas tax is a mistake. Stop spending money on the give aways. We are seeing the effects of the COVID checks. Roads are in a mess now and need to be fixed. Do away with the automatic gas tax increase. Working people can’t take more unnecessary spending by the “Political Elite”.
